A new resource has become available for the various Star Wars games (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny) produced by Fantasy Flight Games that I thought was pretty well done. These are basic dashboards to help players track the ship they are currently on and keep a basic list of actions that one could perform while the pilot or the astromech on the ship.
Hoi, Chummer. Welcome to the 21st Century of gaming. With a return to gaming as a player, I've taken up the task of just trying to get notes down about what has happened in the game sessions so that some of the information isn't lost over time and help track what the group is up to. Rather than just using something simple and old fashioned, like paper, or slightly newer ideas, like a Word document, I've taken to utilizing a new tool that has been discussed before.
"One day, everything was normal. Kids went to school. Parents went to work or stayed home doing normal chores. Highways suffered from traffic jams and people committed petty crimes (and not so petty) against each other. And then IT happened. A flu struck that was unlike any other before it. People quickly got sick, some seemed to die, and when they woke up... they were Different. Hungry. Feral. They felt no pain and just seemed to want to eat their fellow man.
The day has come. The party is creeping along in a new and exciting dungeon that's hasn't seen the light of day in centuries. They turn the corner and come face to face with... Hmm...

Now here's an interesting Kickstarter that might help to deal with some of those issues of deck shuffling that seem to crop up in various games. OK, they just really crop up in my Savage Worlds games in regards to people blaming the shuffler for their bad draw from the deck for initiative.
Only War, the latest setting from Fantasy Flight Games for the Warhammer 40K universe. You are the masses that are the last line of defense of the Imperium against the outsiders that threaten the God-Emperor's reign. How did you get to where you are? Were you conscripted from your world and forced into the fight?
Weird Tales, Amazing Stories, Astounding Science Fiction, Galaxy Science Fiction, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. Weekly or monthly titles that fed the imaginations of millions with colorful images and headlines whose titles would rival the best catchlines that a muckraker of the turn of the century would envy. Creating such as a GM might make for great ways to introduce players into the flavor of a campaign, but not everyone is an artist, or has the time to create such works.
Having created character sheets for Sundered Skies, I decided to go through some of the other character sheets that PEG has available for download for various Savage Worlds settings. I’ve taken these sheets and made them all form-fillable as well as savable from Adobe Reader and other PDF readers. Below is a brief list of the settings for which I have created forms.
